FM2014 Real Names and German National Team Fix File – version 2.1 for FM14.3.0 [02/03/2014]
This file is intended for version 14.3.0 of FM14, and will need to be re-applied if/when patches/updates are released to ensure full compatibility. This is due to the fact that some files which are removed when installing this file are re-installed when patches come out.

The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 14 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed. It will also fix the fact that the German National team doesn't call up real players. These are fully save-game compatible.

There is also a club name changes file, which changes the names of clubs in a way which ensures that any nicknames entered in the default database are retained. This file includes the proper names for Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, with 23 media files added to encompass all major footballing nations and continents. It also includes a small file to correct some incorrect national kit colours and ones whose kits were not displaying. Finally, it includes a small file which corrects the 3-Letter competition names to correspond with any changes made in the lnc files. For all these files to work, however, you will need to start a new game.

Magrippinho very helpfully created a YouTube video on how this file should be installed. Some of the contents are different - but the procedure is identical, although of course you use the equivalent folder for FM14.

Or, you can follow the below instructions to install this file:

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2014 \ data \ db \ 1430 
Mac
USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2014 \ Data \ db \ 1430
Linux
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2014/data/db/1430/

Please note that the Local folder is hidden. Press (ctrl + h)
For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Step 2: Delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders from the folder above

Step 3: Copy the dbc, edt and lnc folder from this download into the folder mentioned in step 1.

Step 4: Go to:

Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2014
Step 5: Open the folder named "editor data" contained therein. If it does not exist, then create it.

Step 6: Keeping the folder in step 5 open, go back to the file you downloaded and open the folder named "editor data files".

Step 7: Copy everything from the folder in step 6 into the folder mentioned in step 5.



To check if the file is working, go to the Champions Cup and EURO Vase, and they should be renamed to Champions League and Europa League respectively. If you are in the middle of a save-game, German national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not instantly.
Discussion
As explained elsewhere, this file needs to be re-applied after every official patch is released.
Hi,

Is anyone else having this problem where some Italian club names (examples are Parma and Fiorentina) do not appear in news items?

MY PLAYER NAME CANNOT CHANGE AFTER USED THAT FILE

Buy an official version of the game.
Hello,

Every time I start a career, I get unreal players' name. the players are correct and everything and if I go to their 'information' screen I get the correct name but the names showing outside are all incorrect.

i did everything u said under this post, yet, i found nothing !

any help ?
it seems we are all facing the same problem,

mons, do we have to buy it through net or u got a website to download it from ?

thanks
This fix does work if people the follow the instructions at the top or in the excellent youtube vid. The German National Team on my save has the real players in it instead of the grey fake players that appear at the start due to legal issues.

I think anyone asking for a crack version should be banned.
How about for new path 14.1.5. I already follow the instruction correctly but now i can't get in again into the game..?
MYBI
This files works perfectly for patch 14.1.4 if you follow the instructions clearly explained at the top of the page and in the YouTube video linked therein.

As 14.1.5 isn't out yet, I can't guarantee this'll work with it, can I? But 99.9999% it will, with some small tweaks.
Is there a way to get the names to overwrite the names stored in an xml file? As i'm running the Welsh Pyramid file and it has theWord Cup saved as the Loosemores League Cup and I can't seem to overwrite the name.
In the editor files, do you leave the "media files" in the folder that they're in?

Unfortunately not. Changes in an xml file will always take precedence over lnc files



In the editor files, do you leave the "media files" in the folder that they're in?

Up to you, but they'll work either way
Champion, cheers for the quick response.
Please help me.. why i can't get in again to my fm14..? I play it from steam. But after i follow all the instruction correctly i found my fm14 just keep loading and could not into start page after almost 30 minutes. Could i reinstall the game from steam. How to do it..? Thanks for your concern...

I've NEVER heard of anything similar happening, so you've probably somehow installed the files incorrectly.

To help you fix it, can I please have a screenshot of ALL the folders in which you installed this patch in?
Does this work on FMC? It works fine for me on "normal" FM but the national squad are still greyed out in FMC.
I don't play FMC so I have no idea, sorry. Perhaps somebody else can confirm/deny...
This is the progress bro.. After 1 hour loading then i could get in into main screen. But now the problem is, i always waiting for an hour just to get into the main screen. What i suppose to do..? are there in the preference setting should i change to solve this problem.

Hello mons.
Are you planning to release new fix version for FM14.2?
Cheers!
Yes, thank you in advance mons
There is no need as the previous files works perfectly without needing any alterations
Hey Mons, thanks for the file, it's greatly appreciated. One thing I noticed since the 14.2 update is that in the search menu in game where it used to say ''club'' or ''nation'' I only get numbers (347103 and 347237) and also in each individual country tab where I believe it should say ''competition'' I get (297254). Everything else is perfect as usual (national teams, comp names, etc. I've reapplied the 1.2 files since the update, restarted the game and steam. Obviously these aren't major issues but any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Edit : I just reinstalled the game completely without the name fix files and I'm still getting the same problem so It's not related to these files. Still curious if anybody else sees the same thing in their game ?

thanks again for the file Mons

Hi Mons, do I understand you right - no need to reinstall the files from Fix 1.2 for patch 14-1-4 again, after patch 14-2 has been installed ?
You got that right, yes.
Does this works with 14.2 patch??
is there version 1.3 for 14.2?!
wqewqe
To both of you, why not trying reading the thread before posting?

There is no need for a new release as the previous files works perfectly without needing any alterations
